5.0 out of 5 stars How could something so funny..... June 21 2004
....leave such a deep emotional scar?
Just like the third disk of the first season, we get hit with the revelations of battle, the "last date" with Suguru. And the commemcement. Again, filled with flashbacks and introspective moments, this last set of episodes make for an intense experience. As the viewer, many scenes reminded me of moments that occured over the couse of both seasons. After "living" with Mahoro, Suguru, and friends with such enjoyable memories, it all comes down to keeping Suguru away from danger. We get a deja-vu moment of "the picnic that never happened" from the first series. And we are left to our own imagination to decipher what we just saw.
Saying much more than that would be too revealing of the plot. Way too many people have spoiled this story in their reviews, here and on other sites. For better or worse, I think it takes a work of genious to seed such strong emotions in an audience. Mahoromatic is that work. To quote another opinion on this series, "Mahoromatic betrays the atmosphere, and
more importantly the carefully constructed character personalities developed throughout the series." That betrayal is the finishing touch on a true work of art that breaks the rules right when everybody expects the norm. The end result being a solid polarization of the audience containing both good and bad reatcions.
This series has been over the top in every way. From the beginning, it was aparrent that this story would come out no-holds-barred. Perverse, funny, corny, sweet, and upsetting. This series is an experience that I'm glad I subjected myself to.
(Vague Spoiler Warning)
To debunk any Television Economics Naysayers. I have seen a scan of the final page of the manga. The story wasn't butchered for the sake of television. In fact, I would conclude that Gainax merely sprinkled a little sugar on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Emotional Roller Coaster Ride! May 23 2004
By Kurt K.
Holy Mackerel! I'm still in a state of shock the day after viewing the final two episodes. I've thoroughly enjoyed the entire series. You're totally drawn in as you get to know each of the characters and begin to care and feel for them, particularly Mahoro and Suguru. When I first started watching it I was just expecting a typical light-hearted comedy along the lines of the Love Hina series. But late in the first season and especially at the end of the second, you see a much darker and sinister side to it and you become totally engulfed in the events that are to transpire. Without giving anything away, the writers could have taken the easy way out as the series wound to a close. But their final solution was, shall we say, unique but definitely original; so you've got to give them credit for that. I had to watch the final two episodes each a second time just to try and take it all in and to confirm and reassure myself that what I had just witnessed had actully happened. Basically the series runs the enitire gamut of emotions. It's got it all: comedy, drama, romance, suspense and even a slight aura of mystery about it. Yes, the ending is sad and somewhat depressing, but certainly plausable and as I said before, unique and original. I've certainly never seen anything like it before. It definitely makes you think. For it to be able to have such an emotional impact and still have you talking about it the next day, how could it not succeed?

5.0 out of 5 stars Time to clear up the ending Feb. 22 2004
I really enjoyed this whole series, regardless of all the sexual referances and lot of nudity. I read alot of reviews that said the ending is incrediblely sad. it is sad but not as bad as a lot of the endings I seen. Don't read on if you haven't seen the ending. In the end that girly looking cyborg from managment is sent to kill Suguru. Mahoro and Suguru run away to try and escape while Slash and Suguru's grandfather kill all of Managment. The girly cyborg find Mahoro and Suguru but Mahoro self destructs to kill him and save Suguru. With Managment dead peace is made between Humans and Saint but Suguru is thrown into a depression because everyone he has ever loved has died. He moves to a neutral colony and becomes a half human half machine Managment cyborg hunter who greatly resembles Gene Starwind from Outlaw Star. Saint reserects Mahoro to finally make Suguru happy and he moves back to earth to see all his friends again. This is a somewhat good ending but i would love another season where everyone is an adult.

3.0 out of 5 stars very disappointing Jan. 4 2004
By A Customer
I have to say that I fell in love with this anime from the first episode. It's definitely one of my favorites. Unfortunately, the two most critical episodes (the last two) really sucked.
Don't read further if you are worried about spoilers. The series just fell apart leaving me confused and depressed. While Mahoromatic did at times focus on serious subject matter, for the most part it was a light-hearted comedy. Why they decided to ruin this by turning it into a tragedy is beyond me. The creators really betrayed the fans on this one. They have forever tainted the enjoyment I received from the rest of the series. While the art, music and acting are as amazing as always, the story really ran out of gas. The wrap-up was poorly conceived and rushed, leaving more questions than answers. It does not even feel like part of the same series. And they denied us the ending we all deserved. Isn't there enough sadness in life already?
